You probably have lots of questions.

Knowing you can fulfill the dream for your home is great.  But if you’re the type of person with a checklist, you also know there are plenty of practical matters to consider, right?

Financial questions like these:

  • The money aspects of building a custom home—how does that work?

  • How much should I budget for my project?

  • Can I get an accurate cost estimate?

  • Sustainable construction for my investment property—does that make financial sense? What’s important?

Infrastructure questions:

  • Solar panels—that’s a wise investment for my property, right?

  • I have rural property, so I need to know about septic systems.

  • Rain water collection—I want to own my water.

  • Where should the driveway go?

  • How do we manage heavy rainfall and drainage on my land?

  • How will we connect to the utilities?

Questions about construction and mechanical systems:

  • What materials go into my home— lumber, windows, insulation, roofing, exteriors?

  • What kind of heating and air conditioning makes the best economic sense?

  • How do I make my house easy to maintain and operate?

Your house should work for you, rather than you having to work for the house.

How you ever wondered about the term sustainability? What does it mean? What does it have to do with green building? Why should you care?

It’s this: A home that’s sustainable works for you. This notion of sustainability is the basis of green building.

Makes good common sense, doesn’t it?

Wouldn’t you want to ensure your own home makes good common sense? It doesn’t happen by accident. It takes careful thought and planning. Look for these things:

  • Site planning for your house is sensitive to the immediate environment. You’ll want to minimize destruction of trees, for example. And in central Texas where we experience periodic rain bombs, you’ll sleep easier knowing your site plan considers proper drainage.

  • Your home is planned for energy efficiency throughout. Orientation of the house to the sun. High-performance heating and air conditioning. Lighting, insulation, and appliances that reduce your energy use. These things save you money.

  • Exceptional interior air quality through the use of advanced air filtration and exchange systems.

  • Extensive use of nontoxic building materials so your family breathes clean air.

  • Water conservation efficiencies, such as water-saving toilets and shower fixtures and possibly some reuse of waste water.

  • Ease of long-term operation and management.
